shopping list for my 9 wk old Harley

I have had dogs most of my life. Harley is my first havanese. He also will be my smallest adult.
I live in the middle of nowhere, and it is beautiful. But there is zero place to shop unless I drive 200 miles-which I seldom do.
So....It would be very helpful if you could give me items that I will need and where they can be purchased.
Debating on getting a back back for Harley. Any of you use them. In theory sure would free up my hands

Hi I borrowed a back pack and only used it twice. If you are in the middle of no ware I bet your puppy can start learning to walk with a leash. I used a kennel and that is still being used for car travel.

I too have a small carrier. The reason I thought of the back pack is that I am outdoors alot around my place-I have my own home and live alone. So I would like to have my hands free and also have him with me. Do you recall what it was about the back pack that you did not like.
Also-what kind of comb/brush do you use, I am prepared to do the grooming but need the tools, Do You think most have their hair cut at home? Hard to imagine Harley sitting still enough,

Petedge has alot of products you might want like Chris Christensen butter comb, pin brush, several shampoos. Check other threads for grooming supplies. Alot of people I know with Havs use strollers.

Hi -
I am awaiting a new puppy and found everything I needed and more on amazon.com. I just made a list of what I wanted based on everyone's recommendations from this forum and started searching. I ended up saving about 35-50% off of what I would have paid at Pet Smart. Best part is that it was shipped free in 3 days and at my door when I came home from work yesterday. Here is a list of what I bought:
Iris ex-pen (8 panel)
Midwest crate (24x18)
food and water bowls (Bella Bowls)
dog food (Blue Buffalo)
liver treats
Ian Dunbar's "Before and After Puppy" book
combs and brush (C. Christensen)
electric clipper (Wall)
nail clipper
dog bed
pee-pad holder
pee pads
bell for the doorknob w/ a training DVD
toys (8 different. Some are Pet Stages and some are Nylabone)
puppy kongs (4 different - small or puppy sized)
car seat (Outward Hound)
travel carrier (Bergan)
dog sling (Outward Hound)
collar, leash and dog tag (engraved w/ dog's info)
neat sheet for under the ex-pen

Hope this helps!
Enjoy

Best,

Keep in mind that back packs and harnesses will cause matting on long hair. Especially if the dog is going through a coat change. I have a large back pack for my poodle, I love it but stopped using it because it matted his hair terribly.

Hi -
I bring the puppy home in 4 weeks. But have been reading this forum since March and with all of the great info and advice it really helped me with a supply list. This waiting for her to come home is the hardest part! I was able to visit her last weekend and that is what got me shopping. I have also heard that harnesses cause mats but I like to use them in the car to attach to the car-seat. I guess I will have to wait and see what happens...

Best,

Yep except for the essentials puppy will dictate alot. My Ted prefers a flat collar. We are not fenced in and most of Teds outings are all on leash so for the 2 of us, harnesses are just a nuisance. Just from me taking care of what goes on under a collar I can only imagine a harness with mats. I had a canvas bag that I tried to carry Ted in once. He hated it. He likes to walk or be carried!!! Yep me thinks Ted rules what I purchase!
